Minneapolis' Aquatennial celebration is set to return Wednesday with the CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade.

Last year's event was canceled due to the pandemic, although some virtual activities were created.

Heroes of health care within the community will serve as Grand Marshals for Wednesday night's parade, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

Dozens of festive floats and colorful displays are expected, and other performances and activities are slated to start along the route starting at 6 p.m.
